You guys, 2016 has truly been the most incredible year of my life! As I was going through the pictures from the past 12 months I felt overwhelmed with joy and gratitude. I've been on so many adventures (in 13 different countries!), met so many inspiring people, have shared so much beauty with my love,... - I just can't put it into words. I somehow managed to select my favourite highlights, but before I share them with you, I'd like to point out that all of you, my sweet readers, are definitely among them - as your presence, day after day, year after year, means the world to me. Thanks so much for being there, and for letting me share my world with you. :) All my love xx
1. HAUTE COUTURE FASHION WEEKS
Kicked off the fashion year with one of my fave events, the Haute Couture Fashion Weeks in Paris, NYC and London. This delicate handmade ensemble I wore for the Dior show made me so happy! :)
2. THE HOME RENOVATION PROJECT
Came home in February to our newly decorated living room, the first finished room in the house we bought last year - today, it's still one of my favourite rooms (find our bedroom reveal right here, if you'd like).
3. AGENT PROVOCATEUR CAMPAIGN
Shooting e full campaign for Agent Provocateur was such an honour!
4. CALIFORNIA ROAD TRIP
We went on the most amazing USA road trip, from the Coachella music festival (non-stop dancing), to Las Vegas (glittery kitsch), to Joshua Tree National Park (remote desert vibes), to the Grand Canyon (breathtaking views), to LA (pool time!): it was one hell of a ride!
5. CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
6. GRAZIA COVER SHOOT
My first cover shoot for Grazia came out in June! Soooo exciting and surreal to see myself on the newsstands!
7. RIO DE JANEIRO WITH LOUIS VUITTON
Attending the LV Cruise Collection show in Rio was definitely one of the fashion highlights this year. I shared my experiences (including a crazy helicopter ride and bumping into a, eh, special man at the breakfast buffet) on WhoWhatWear.
I've visited lots of amazing hotels in my life, but the Amanzoe resort in Greece (that I got to experience with the lovely Michael Kors) was something different. It was out of this world beautiful and tranquil - I just never wanted to leave.
You guys know how dear to my heart my SANUI product line is, so it's probably no surprise that the launch of our jewelry and keychain collections this year was so thrilling for me! I can't wait to share our future projects with you all! :)
11. FASHIONATA RELAUNCH
After months and months of prep we presented the new Fashionata, including a complete redesign and lots of new content. Definitely one of the most exciting days ever!! :)
12. SEPTEMBER FASHION WEEKS
This year's September Fashion Month was C.R.A.Z.Y! I attended so many memorable shows, from Victoria Beckham in NYC (with little breaks in between), Preen in London and Gucci in Milano, to Dior, Chanel and Louis Vuitton in Paris, and we wrote a little piece on Vogue's lash out to bloggers (I loved reading your thoughts so much!).
13. AMAZING COLLABS
